Leamh Beag Hat (PDF Knitting Pattern)
My Lagan Love is set to a traditional Irish air. The second verse, often omitted by performers, speaks of Leamh-beag - believed to be a small village along the River Lagan.
Leamh Beag is one of three hats in the Leamh series.
It is a cabled beanie-style hat. It is worked bottom up with easy 1/1 and 2/2 cables. The ribbed nature of the fabric makes it very ‘springy’ – it will stretch up to 3” / 7.5cm in circumference.
